Nkrumah’s Day: Only CPP can deliver quality education to Ghanaians – Greenstreet

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) is the only political party in Ghana that can deliver the kind of education all Ghanaians need, the party’s flagbearer for the 2020 polls, Mr  Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, has said.

He also said it is only his party that can provide the skills that Ghana needs “so that we can do all the jobs that we shall provide. So vote for yourself.”

In a statement to mark the birthday celebrations of Ghana’s First President Dr Kwame Nkrumah on Monday September 21, Mr Greenstreet said “It is only the CPP that can deliver affordable housing for all. Not foreign designed and built houses but houses that are designed and built by Ghanaians to live in not to earn others excess profits. So vote for yourself.”

He added “We celebrate the birthday of the one person who made it possible for us to have Ghana as the united political entity we find today.

“We celebrate the birthday of the one who thought he came from lowly and humble origins, brought to life the vision of Africa, free from colonialism and imperial rule and was bold enough to translate that vision into a mission that could be actualized and implemented.”

Below is his full statement…

Ghana’s first president, Kwame Nkrumah, was the son of a goldsmith and a petty trader.

By dint of hard work, he was able to educate himself and change his life’s story.

This is the Ghanaian Dream in action. If this was done in the 1900s, why can’t we do it today in the 21st century?​

We must create a just society where everyone has a fair and equal chance of success, and make the sky the limit for those who want to change their destiny.

People of Ghana, we celebrate the birthday of one of the greatest heroes of our past in Ghana.

We celebrate the birthday of the one person who made it possible for us to have Ghana as the united political entity we find today.

We celebrate the birthday of the one who thought he came from lowly and humble origins, brought to life the vision of Africa, free from colonialism and imperial rule and was bold enough to translate that vision into a mission that could be actualized and implemented.

From humble origins, what he had was a mind to study at the feet of people such as Aggrey of Africa, to be motivated by people such as Azikiwe of Nigeria, to be inspired by people such as Marcus Garvey to be tutored by people such as Padmore and to be nurtured by WEB Dubois. He was associated with Jomo Kenyata, Kamuzu Banda, Julius Nyerere, Kenneth Kaunda, Ben Bella, Nasser, and several others as he pursued his dream of a united and independent Ghana and a united Africa.

But it was not only amongst the pan Africanist world that he found himself in good company – Nkrumah of Ghana helped to forge one of the largest movements in the world – the non-aligned movement when he stood shoulder to shoulder with Nehru of India, Surkano of Indonesia, Nasser of Egypt, Tito of Yugoslavia to help diffuse the raging Cold War.

Nkrumah had always stood heads above all those who were in the movement for independence, his party, the CPP was perhaps the most successful party in this country that it was necessary to ban it and to clip the wings of the Big Red Cockerel.

But you cannot keep a good thing down forever and despite the problems that the CPP has had as a party, we will return.

As we mark his birthday, let me remind you that we the CPP are ready to take over the mantle of government so remember that a vote for CPP is a Vote for yourself.

It is only the CPP that can deliver the education that we all need, quality education that will touch our minds and our bodies. So vote for yourself.

It is only the CPP that can provide the skills that we need so that we can do all the jobs that we shall provide. So vote for yourself.

It is only the CPP that can deliver affordable housing for all. Not foreign designed and built houses but houses that are designed and built by Ghanaians to live in not to earn others excess profits. So vote for yourself.

It is only the CPP that can take Ghana into the fourth industrial age. We are on the precipice of technological upheavals that continue to transform the way we live, work, and interact. The transformation will be extraordinary as the new age dawns at an ever faster pace changing systems of production, management, and governance.
